The Illinois Hospital Association (Naperville, Illinois) and Premier Purchasing Partners (Charlotte, North Carolina) reported the signing of Centegra Health System (Crystal Lake, Illinois) into the Illinois Purchasing Collaborative (IPC), IHA’s new program aimed at reducing member supply chain costs.

With the addition of Centegra, 22 IHA members are now participating in the IPC which allows members to take advantage not only of Premier’s contracts but also the IPC’s collaborative model for enhancing those supplier contracts and negotiating regional contracts.

Centegra was formerly with Amerinet (St. Louis).
